thanks for your query, i have gone through your query.
the numbness in the face could be because of injury or damage to the trigeminal nerve. consult a oral physician and neurophysician to rule out the nerve injury. you can take nerve regenerating drugs like capsule neurobion once daily for 15days. be careful when you take hot things. i hope my answer will help you. take care.
